Semiconductor Manufacturing and R&D

The semiconductor industry is booming in the Austin area. In fact, semiconductor chips are the fourth most traded goods in the world.

High product demand has created a need for semiconductor manufacturing and research and development, causing companies to buy and lease industrial space at a rapid rate. Hutto has an abundance of available land and space, including land and industrial buildings, and big-block space at Innovation Business Park.

Hutto businesses also have access to a large, highly skilled, and experienced labor pool from Austin and the surrounding communities. Several acts are also underway to provide incentives and attract semiconductor manufacturers to the US.

Advanced Manufacturing

Texas, and in particular, the Central Austin area, is leading the way in electric vehicle manufacturing. The Tesla Texas Gigafactory, Tesla’s fourth US factory and its headquarters, opened in April of 2022, establishing a firm base for electric transportation and auto manufacturing. This in-demand industry is expected to experience rapid growth, and Hutto’s strategic location, access to major roadways and available land, and large workforce pool make it a great location for electric vehicle and component manufacturing.
